With their biocompatibility and low wear on opposing teeth, full cast crowns and inlays remain a popular restorative option. Fabricated using your choice of alloy – high noble, noble white or noble yellow – our cast restorations are accurately fabricated to seat with a minimum of chair time.
Inlays and onlays can also be fabricated as a full-cast restoration.
Feather-edge margin preparations are indicated for full-cast restorations, but any margin preparation may be used.
